Imma let you finish, but this FATBURGER location was NOT the best location of all time! That’s not exactly the verbage coming out of Kanye West Foods‘ camp, but it is indeed the situation the rap superstar has found himself in. For those unfamiliar, Kanye West purchased the right to open 11 FATBURGER locations in the Chicago and Los Angeles areas in an agreement dating back to the summer of 2008.
According to a report from MTV, Kanye’s flagship location in Orland Park has closed due to unfavorable financial performance of the restaurant. FATBURGER Marketing Coordinator Maria Brooks is quoted saying, “It’s unfortunate that the Orland Park location owned by Kanye West Foods, LLC has closed, but we hope to have a presence in the Orland Park community at some time in the future.” Tough times.
